Children who have taken "Intro to Jigs" will love learning this fun "set dance"! Through this dance, we will learn some new moves, strengthen our footwork, and have a fabulous "party piece"! Each week, children will: 1) Say hello to the teacher, and watch a video of a dancer(s) performing the brush dance. Each week will feature a different setting/age/performance type so that students get a sense of the different ways the dance can be performed. 2) Dance our signature warmup (that...

This curriculum has been written by renowned traditional Irish dancer/musician and teaching artist Shannon Dunne. Her work with master dancers such as Róisín Ní Mhainín, Pádraig Ó hOibicín, Gearóid and Patrick Devane, among many others, has given her intimate access to the tight-knit Irish dance community in Ireland and the United States, and has afforded her a place among the top sean-nós dancers in North America. The Washington Post called her dancing, "Playful musicality! Spirited and fun!" She was a qualifier for the All Ireland Fleadh in 2017, as MidAtlantic Champion. Her multi-generational company, Shannon Dunne Dance has won many titles and commendations, including 2 All-Ireland medalists and 1 All-Ireland special commendation. Shannon has received grants and fellowships from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts. She has performed on stages across the globe, including the Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center, Symphony Space in New York City, and the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in D.C., and been a featured soloist with groups such as the Mick Moloney's Celitc Appalachia and Green Fields of America, Kitchen Quartet, and represented Ireland in Christylez Bacon's Washington Sound Museum.
To bring/wear: A water bottle Comfortable clothing to move It is recommended, but not necessary, that children wear "noisy" shoes, that is shoes that make noise when they strike the floor, of any kind: rubber, hard rubber, leather, taps, etc. This will help students to get audible rhythmic feedback. Dance is a physical activity, and this style of dance is similar to tap dance, it is low to the ground and focused on rhythm and footwork. Though it is not as athletic as the "Riverdance" style of Irish dance, it is still a gross-motor, physical activity and children should have a dedicated open dance space, preferably 6x6 or larger. Obviously, any obstructions in the dance space could lead to collision and injury. The clearer and larger the space, the better.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Our teaching curriculum requires teachers to frequently assess the students' understanding so that we can make adjustments to the level of difficulty. Learner progress is assessed throughout the hour by the teacher. We look at coordination (is the student on the correct foot/move), sequence (is the step happening in the correct order), rhythm, and timing. As a Reggio program, we look at students progress and guide them to improve 1 thing at a time. We do not give negative corrections, but instead guide the child to the next logical step to improve their performance of the step.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.

For the safety of the learner, please make sure: *No eating during class *Clear, defined dance area *Footwear that will support the foot when "battering" on the floor. (Something with a form- sneaker, leather shoe, boots. No jazz/ballet shoes)
This dance was given to us by Michael Tubridy. Michael is a flute player, and was one of the founding members of "the Chieftans" . He learned his dances from his wife, Celine, who was taught by dancing master Dan Furey. You can see Michael Tubridy, and some of his Irish students here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amBzTsHdmMg
